Re: Who plans to order the G1X Mark II?

Hi Tonkotsu and Peter

You may well both be right.  However, I'm not an RX100 buyer, so I'll have to head in the opposite direction.  C'est la vie.

I already have a DSLR and it's a good smaller travel camera I'm after.  As far as mirror-less cameras go there is clearly more than one design school.  Fuji, Olympus and Sony appear to have aimed their upper (enthusiast) models at those who want a BIEVF.    There is another stream of thought around external controls versus touch screens.  Fuji appears to be the one following the BIEVF and external control philosophy, so I suspect that'll be where I head.  Their XT1 is looking very good.

Canon only offers the M which does have a touch screen and doesn't have a BIEVF.  This is clearly a school of thought Canon are following at the moment so I'll have to look elsewhere.  I'll be keeping my Mark 1 for the time being.......

All the best with your own decision making.

Cheers, Rod
